    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really good people who work for this company, but they are not the ones who make the decisions that impact your daily life as an employee.

    Cons

    Pay for performance does not exist, even when you set annual goals and exceed them. There is a lot of drama among the officers in this organization (yelling/cursing at meetings), action plans, too much work for too little pay, monitored clock-in/clock-out, core hours must be met even if you have a medical appointment. The health benefits are horrible (high deductible). It cost approximately $4000 to have my son. Lots of favoritism among managers, who tend to be worker bees. Morally and ethically this company is not good for any degree of work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    No suggestions, you can't change a broken system unless it's rebuilt from the top down.

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are good at Sales, you can make a decent salary.

    It's better than being Unemployed

    Cons

    Treated like a machine rather than a person.

    Constantly threatened with the possibility of losing your job

    Long hours, mandatory overtime, no paid holidays

    Frequent schedule changes

    If you have children, make sure there aren't any emergencies! You will receive an "Occurence" (essentially a write up) if you have to leave work early for a sick child, etc.

    If you have a bad week and don't meet your metrics they will actually deduct money from your pay

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you have actual living, breathing humans working for you, who have families that they would like to see more than once a week. Treat people with respect and empathy and it will go a long way. Employees that feel valued are more inclined to work harder and go the extra mile.
